Pahrump Solar Panel Cleaning

Solar Panel Cleaning

When it comes to solar panel cleaning, Pahrump Pressure Washing has the most experience and has invested thousands of dollars in multi-stage water filtration, extension poles and a 4 jet boar-hair brush, which is the safest equipment for the cleaning. In fact, I do more solar panel cleaning services and installing solar panel bird mesh than pressure washing for my neighbors in Pahrump!

The Safest Solar Panel Cleaning Process

When I clean solar panels, I do not use any cleaners, detergents or surfactants because they leave a residue and may void your warranty. Solar panel manufacturers recommend against using any chemicals to clean solar panels. I do not pressure wash or use squeegees on your solar array, because it can etch or scratch the Anti-Reflective (AR) coating, damaging it permanently. Pressure washing solar panels can also inject water into the panels because solar panels are NOT made to withstand the high water pressures (1000 – 4000 psi) of pressure washing equipment.

Pahrump Pressure Washing uses specially designed solar panel cleaning equipment that safely scrubs and rinses each panel with a specially designed water-fed solar panel brush on an extension pole that can extend up to 30 feet.

I also use triple-filtered water (first carbon filtered, then reverse osmosis filtered and then filtered with deionizing resins) that dramatically reduces the minerals in Pahrump’s hard water, so that mineral and dissolved solids spotting is not a problem. My water filtration system reduces the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in our water from over 430 ppm to under 10 ppm. This loosens and encapsulates the soils and debris while rinsing the surface clean. It eliminates streaking and leaves no residue for the safest and longest lasting cleaning result.

My solar panel cleaning system provides agitation to remove all the caked on dirt, pollen, contaminants and bird droppings that accumulate over time, in the safest way possible for your system. I can professionally clean solar panels located on the ground or your roof.

Solar Panel Bird Mesh Installation

***Solar Panel Bird Mesh Netting can also be professionally installed on your solar array to prevent the mess and irritation of pigeons turning your roof-based solar array into a pigeon nursery and poo factory. Pigeon poo is just like rat poo in that it carries the same pathogens that are unhealthful to inhale.

I can reattach the bird mesh installed incorrectly, where it is falling off, to fix installations done by unqualified and untrained personnel. But this is more expensive than just having it done correctly and with the best materials the first time, because I have to remove AND correctly install the bird mesh. (twice the work!)

I am the only company in Pahrump offering a 10 – Year Guarantee on Bird Mesh Installation!

Solar Panel Array Inspection

All solar panels are inspected before cleaning to identify broken or damaged panels from hail, fallen trees, golf balls, BB or bullet holes, etc… to prevent potential shock or electrocution from leaking panels. PPE is used to insulate the cleaner from possible electrical hazards during cleaning. Electrocution and burns are a real hazard when cleaning solar panels because they are always “Live” and generating DC electricity, even if you shut down the Emergency Shutdown connection to the grid, or have a cloudy day, because the panels are still generating DC current.

More information on how to choose a professional solar panel cleaner and the more than a dozen electrocution hazards a solar panel cleaner needs to know how to identify BEFORE cleaning to mitigate shock and burn hazards can be found here in my blog.

If you have been rinsing your solar panels with your hose, I recommend you stop now. Rinsing your solar panels with the hose creates a white haze from our Pahrump hard water on the panels, just like it does on your shower doors. It also pushes dirt into the solar panel frames and provides no agitation to remove baked on dirt and pigeon poo from the surface of the panel. That hard water haze builds up and permanently filters the sun from your panels, reducing electrical production. This hard water haze is permanent, cannot be removed by scrubbing or any known safe process, and will continue to build up over time. I can always tell right away when solar panels have been hosed off because of the permanent hazy film I see once I begin a professional cleaning.

Solar panels degrade at about 1% per year. This is called degradation. Solar panels that are not cleaned regularly can degrade by as much as 5% per year. Excessive dust or pollen build-up or excessive pigeon poo on solar panels can cause “hot spots” just like when they are shaded by a tree or structure, causing the solar panel to fail. Regular maintenance with an inspection and cleaning by a professional is the best way to maximize the life and investment of your solar array.

You can read Googles top article on degradation Here

Here’s a quote from the article, “Periodic maintenance checks and cleaning can also help prolong the operational time of solar panels. However, it is important that you work with products and companies that practice proper methods of cleaning and maintenance. Otherwise, more harm than good could be done to your solar power system.”
